It is no vicious blot, murder, or foulness,
No unchaste action, or dishonoured step,
That hath deprived me of your grace and favour;
But even for want of that for which I am richer,
A still-soliciting eye, and such a tongue
As I am glad I have not, though not to have it
Hath lost me in your liking.

– William Shakespeare

King Lear, Act 1, Scene 1. Cordelia makes clear to Lear that she is no fortune hunter. She said that she lost her father’s favour not for an act of murder, lust or dishonour. But she offended him because she didn’t have a greedy eye and smooth tongue. She tells him she is glad she doesn’t have them, even though it has cost her his love. Cordelia shows her integrity and honesty in this speech, and shows up Lear for his foolishness and blindness.
